I have the P5K-VM Because i had a A SATA2 hd AND a
PCIx Video card and because i needed those options.
I like asus and the purchase bios was only 6 months old.
Only holdback for some is PCI is only 2 slots.
Go to :Read the stats.It's a reasonable price.

But it also depends on your CPU choice.It an LGA775 socket.

You might know that this board suffers from a great V-core drop issue of about 0.1 volts.
So if you set a Vcore of 1.6 in bios it only gives you about 1.5 real volts.
Anyway there is a solution to the problem, you can simply pencil over the resistor shown in the picture.
Use a 2B or softer lead and make sure you don't get near the other resistors.
Now 1.6v should get you 1.6 real volts and maybe help you get that extra speed from your cpu.

Notice this mod is not the same as the P5K ATX boards as they have 6 vertical resistors as to 5 this board has.

I'll provide you with the Vcore and Vdimm mod next.

For those of you who want the pre-patched kexts for Audio and Network I've attatched them for you. Put them in you Extensions folder
